Spark, Sex and Shopping at Edinburgh International Book Festival

August 13 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

£10 – £12

‘I sensed romance, sex,’ Muriel Spark said in her autobiography, recalling her teacher Miss Christina Kay. Shopping, too, was another lifelong preoccupation; her novels are replete with memorable scenes when characters shop and…shoplift. Louise Welsh and Zoë Strachan, who have written the introductions to Aiding and Abetting and Memento Mori, consider the importance of such essential – and pleasurable – activities in Spark’s life and work. Chaired by Alan Taylor.

Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival’s Muriel Spark 100 series of events – tickets available here.

Accessibility: All EIBF events offer a range of facilities for visitors with access requirements – more information here.
